Set up Dell Test Punchout site

  1. Create a Punchout Template record (ED45).
    1. Specify a Template Name.

      For example, DellTemplate. The Template name is arbitrary.

    2. Leave the Client field blank.
    3. Set your Prodline, Vendor, and PurchFrom Loc field values appropriately.
    4. Add the record.
      Note: If the punchout-enabled vendor is a content aggregator, meaning multiple vendor's items can be shopped for, leave the Vendor field blank. This information is provided manually after shopping has concluded and the items are in RQC.
  2. Create a Punchout User Group (ED41) entry.
    1. Specify DellPunchout for the User Group Name.
    2. For the icon, use "../images/DellPunchout.jpg" (without the quotation marks).
    3. Leave URL field blank.
    4. Add the record.
  3. In Punchout Users (ED43), associate at least one requester with this Punchout User Group record.
    1. In the User Group Name field, select DellPunchout.
    2. Select a valid User Name from your organization and specify that user's requester's ID in the Requester field.
    3. Select DellTemplate for the Template Name value.
    4. Add the record.
  4. Locate the punchout_config.xml file.
    Note: This should be in $LAWDIR/system or in the "assembly area" where the Infor Lawson Requisition Center configuration file is also located. The punchout_config.xml contains templates for certain select vendors.
    1. Using a text editor, open the "punchout_config.xml" file.
    2. In the "<buyingOrg>" section, copy and paste the content into the RQC configuration file ($LAWDIR/system/rqc_config.xml), between the <punchout></punchout> tags.
    3. Locate the <vendor> section where the 'name=' attribute contains "DellPunchout" in the "punchout_config.xml" file.
    4. Copy the entire <vendor> section for DellPunchout from the punchout_config.xml file into your rqc_config.xml file. Copy it after the "buyingOrg" section you just inserted.
  5. Complete the "buyingOrg" configuration section.
    Note: This section describes who you are to the vendor and some system configuration information.

    The DellPunchout configuration can be used as delivered. The values contained in the DellPunchout configuration are for Dell's TEST PUNCHOUT SITE. If and when you want to punchout to Dell you should first call your Dell representative and discuss the process Dell to enable you to punchout to them in a live, production manner. They build a web site with your items and prices, then they provide you with a new set of authentication credentials and possibly a different URL to which to punchout. But as delivered, the "DellPunchout" configuration is useful to test that your Punchout installation and configuration is correct and operational.

    1. After making edits to the "rqc_config.xml" file, re-load it by using the RQC utility menu. Use the direct URL: http://<yourLWSNserver>:<port>/rqc/html/utility.htm.

      If you cannot locate the "punchout_config.xml" file to get the <buyingOrg> or <vendor name="DellPunchout"> sections, use this:
